Ham Member Lookups: 35326

 

My love of shortwave began with an old Philco radio at the age of ten. A couple of years later I earned my Novice license and was issued WN5SAP in New Orleans, LA. After high school I joined the Air Force and was a MARS operator for over six years.

Joining corporate life for major manufacturers around the country, and later owning four businesses in New Orleans, I was out of radio for 32 years. After retiring at the age of 49 in 2000, I decided to get my ham ticket back. Morse Code was never a problem for me, in two weeks I was back up to speed. I love CW, always will. My FISTS # is 11731 and my SKCC # is 287.

The day after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005, I relayed a message sent from FEMA to the Mayor of New Orleans – Ray Nagin. The communication was a very important message from President George W. Bush. Since then, I have twelve TV news stories (all stored on DVD), and numerous newspaper articles that outline some of the moments I have had with Ham Radio.

I am also the Event Coordinator for the Titanic Special Event Station WØS in Branson, MO. and also the W4S in Pigeon Forge, TN.  The next Event will be April 10-12th 2015.

Yes, everyone calls me “SAP”, and I prefer that on and off the air. The FCC knew my sense of humor long ago. Everything I build or own has “SAP” incorporated in the name. My car is the “SAP”mobile. I co-built the “Sapallo” telegraph key while at Dayton 2007 with Al Gallo, WØERE, which was published in the FISTS and World Radio Magazines.

Currently I have a Tri-Ex 70 foot electric tower with a Mosley Pro 67B and Cushcraft 50S5 six meter beam on top. One sixty foot telephone pole and two 50 foot telephone poles are placed along the fence line for a 160 all coax Double Bazooka. A 60 foot Glen Martin tower with Hazer holds my homebrew Halfwave Three Element 30 Meter Monster Beam, I call my “Trizilla.” The reflector element is 48.5 feet long.  The only other one is on the South Tower of W1AW.  I also have a Fullwave 80 Meter Delta Loop hung vertical at 60 feet with a switching stub that turns the loop into a Two Wave Length Bi-Square on 40 Meters. Another Fullwave 80 Meter Horizontal Loop up 50 feet. Click to view the station at www.tparca.org/bellringers/Roster/n0sap.htm.

73 and 6146. “SAP”
